Calling Out For All Creative Dads!

The Art of Fatherhood

One of the coolest things I have seen here at Life of Dad is when fathers and their kids create something together. We have had fathers send us pictures of Pinewood Derby cars that they worked on with their kids. I did an article about a dad who made a high chair to look like an AT-ST from Star Wars. We have seen dads get tattoos of drawings that their kids made for them.

These dads are all in and they are looking to create memories with their kids! We love seeing these bonds formed with their children.

One way we get learn about all of the fun and creative projects that dads are doing with their sons and daughters is during the Geek Show. The Geek Show is where Patrick Quinn and I do a live show on the Life of Dad Facebook page talking about all things Pop Culture. Dads from all over the world share their thoughts on the different topics we discuss every Wednesday night at 9 pm EST/ 6 pm PST.
